I find the best way to avoid wine service disappointments is as W+A and Sandy say, take charge of the situation and be clear and direct in your expectations.
This is a fairly common one, and I've just gotten into the habit of always telling the server exactly what size pour I'd like.
I watch as the server makes the first pour and signal them to stop pouring early. Sometimes I'll politely tell them we prefer to pour the wine ourselves.
I always do this ... this has never caused a problem, and I suspect many waitstaff are relieved to be relieved of this duty.
